Thompson and Morgan now have a xmas special on these bulbs. Are they hardy or should I put them in the polytunnel after blooming. Do they divide well if kept outdoors? I would post the url but it didn't work as it's in a portal from my isp (internet service provider) You'll have to go to their website and subscribe to the newletter. Price was 2.99 pounds. And they give you an additional red one. Good plan if you have gifts in mind.
Good idea if you're searching for bargains is to subscribe to a newsletter and get alerts on best pricing if you're looking for something special or want to stretch your gardening dollar.

hi,there are hardy amarylis,think they are a.belladonna,i have some outdoors,they flower in the autumn and are fully hardy.The ones i think you are talking about wouldnt be and should be kept frost free after flowering.they can be put outside for the summer then gradually allow them to dry off in the autumn for a rest period,repot and away you go again.remove and pot up any bulbils they may have formed on the main bulb.Check out varieties on www.peternyssen.com.
